WHO Releases Official Guidelines on Use of Antibiotics in Livestock

WHO urges farmers to put a curb on antibiotics use in farm animals

Dr Boyden said the World Health Organisation has warned antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest threats to human health today and is making it increasingly hard to treat bacterial infections.

According to the CDC, 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics every year and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result of these infections.

Professor Alison Holmes, Director of the NIHR HRPU in Healthcare Associated Infection and Antimicrobial Resistance, said: "Antibiotic resistance is a serious global threat and we are already seeing its impact first hand in the NHS". Together, we will slow the spread antibiotic resistance and preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics for future generations.

"It's partly about explaining to patients why antibiotics won't help".

"We always try to have an antibiotic that we can treat an infection with", says Cloud. "They should be taken as prescribed, never saved later or shared with others". Being more careful not to use antibiotics unless completely necessary.

Staff and students will be able to surrender their unused or out of date antibiotics for safe disposal at the Sherfield Building on South Kensington campus and the Commonwealth Building at Hammersmith, between 12:00-13:30.

As part of the awareness week Dr Enrique Castro-Sanchez, Lead Research Nurse at HRPU, will be taking part in a live Twitter chat at 3pm GMT on Tuesday 14 November through Infectious Disease Hub.

"We are misusing antibiotics by using them when it is not needed (for the common cold or viral infection), not completing the prescribed dose and using them to promote growth and productivity in agriculture", Stegelmeier said.

The WHO said their guidelines contribute directly to the aims of the Global action plan on antimicrobial resistance adopted by the World Health Assembly in 2015 and the Declaration of the High-Level Meeting of the United Nations General Assembly on Antimicrobial Resistance, adopted in 2016.
